's listen to mitt romney talking about abortion. >> do you intend to pursue legislation specifically regarding abortion? >> there is no legislation regarding abortion that i'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda. >> now the democrats have seized on this, you can't really blame them, because his position on abortion does change, according to the strength. he was very much in favor of pro choice, governor of massachusetts, now he is in favor of pro life. but he always as a pro lifer said we need to revert to roe v wade, people say he says what suits him, depending on whether he is appealing to the hard right of the party, or as he is now, according to bill clinton, mr. moderate mitt, that we haven't seen it for a few months. >> well, first of all, i couldn't hear it very well, i assume it is referring to the des moines register. but are there piles of legislation sitting in congress that he is going to point to? the des moines register editorial board? the fact is, he is and has always been committed to being a pro-life president. he is committed to the fact that he will
's watch a clip today of governor romney talking about abortion. >> what is the correct position of governor romney? he was always saying we need to revert row wade and now he is saying not even that. people says whatever it suits him depending on whether he is appealing to the hard right. mr. moderate mitt that we haven't seen for months. >> you know, listen, to what he is referring to as far as is there piles of specific legislation that he is going to point to? the fact is, he is always has been an he is committed to being a pro life president and committed to the fact that we will not be funding planned parenthood to fund abortions and committed to the mexico city legislation so that it is being used to perform abortions and he is a pro life president and he is proud of it. you are taking that sound byte and referring to piles of legislation sitting in congress and it is much to do about nothing. this president hasn't performed and he is chasing every rob it down the trail making this about his own record and the miserable condition about the economy. >> it comes down to trus
. there are a significant number of americans who are under employed or unemployed. the romney people have to talk about how they are going to do things differently. i think that's part of the discussion tonight. >> but the basic argument that president obama's trying to make is that, no, things aren't perfect but they're getting better and there's polling that suggests that most americans or certainly a whole lot more americans -- >> today believe things are getting better. >> essentially believe that. >> quickly, chris. let me get you in. something else this administration will perhaps have to answer forgiven that this debate will address domestic and foreign policy is the situation in libya and the ongoing investigation from the congressional hearing we saw yesterday split along partisan line. i want to play what the president just said in a recent interview regarding the development in libya and his administration's handling of that situation. >> as information came in, information was put out. the information may not have always been right the first time. these are people i know, and if there's somethi
health insurance and now can't get it, well, sir, that was your decision. that's romney talking. obama stuck his neck out and rescued it. mr. romney said, let it take bankruptcy. this is the big drastic differences between these candidates and these debates should debate them. >> howard fineman, a political analyst and editorial director of the huffington post. he's here and rounding out our panel in kentucky is the pulitzer prize columnist eugene robinson. thank you for being with us. i want to start with chuck. your reporting, does it tell you that it's going to be a broad debate about philosophy and differences or a congressional markup sessions where they argue over details? >> i think if it's up to paul ryan it's going to be details, a little markups and in the weeds. if it's up to biden, it's going to be more of a lively, ideological split. one of the goals they would hope that joe biden accomplishes tonight is to make you feel better, essentially, chris, is to make the base of the party feel better. show some fight. get in there in some issues that they know, create a divide in
or not ryan is committed to all of it and what the details are. also mr. romney talked about abortion in murky terminology. again an opportunity for biden to try and push at that topic. >> the same thing with congressman ryan. he can also push that the administration can't run away from where we are in the economy, even now foreign policy coming into play. >> right. i suspect libya is going to come up. it's going to abtough topic for biden to answer. it's strange because this was biden's strength. he was a foreign policy guy, chairman of the foreign relations committee. now he's going to have to actually answer questions about what we knew in libya, what was going on there. >> one final question. it is television and going back to the kennedy and nixon debates. everyone said nixon won. the young versus the older, the well made up versus the not made up. the age difference between ryan and biden and the youth factor, is that going to make a difference? >> it could play both ways. on the one hand ryan looks young anding inic which is about -- and energetic which is good. on the other hand you wa
one mom from a navy seal gets tired of mitt romney talking about his son and she puts an end to it. >> imagine how shocked i was to learn that he was one of the two navy--former navy seals killed in (vo) always outspoken, now unleashed. joy behar. >> on my next show, rain pryor talks about having having a go go dancer mom, richard pryor for a dad, and a madame for great grandmother. hello, paging dr. freud. tell them it's like being nestled in an eight-way, adjustable, heated and ventilated seat surrounded by a 500-watt sound system while floating on a suspension made of billowy clouds. or you could just hand them your keys. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> cenk: the republicans on fox news channel have this strategy that they do before a debate. it's called the preemptive strike. the republicans are familiar with that. this month they're doing it to martha radis. how are they doing it? oh she's bias, she likes obama. a daily caller put out an article. president obama was guest of the 1991 wedding of abc senior foreign correspondent of m
was a week ago. the economy getting better has caused romney to switch a little bit, talking not just about the economy but also about leadership and also trying to make himself a more acceptable alternative both personally and ideologically. >> steve, you look at these numbers, you've got to be thinking one thing if you're running a campaign, turnout, turnout, turnout. turnout will make a difference. >> turnout's going to make the difference, but one of the things that's going to help drive turnout is that momentum. and clearly 26 days out mitt romney's got momentum in this race. he was staring into the abyss a week ago. you look at all of the polls, and you look at the real clear politics average from last night where they average all these polls together, mitt romney ahead at that national average for the first time, getting very, very tight in these swing states. you know, i think that romney, you know, that tonight, you know, joe biden's got to do what dick cheney did eight years ago. he's got to stop the momentum. >> stop the bleeding. >> that the democrats had coming out of that bad
they have simply failed to take personal responsibility for their lives. nice talk. listen to romney say out loud if you have a pre-existing medical condition and don't have insurance, well, that's your problem because that was your decision. that's how he talks. the same with the automobile industry. romney -- obama stuck his neck out to rescue it for all kinds of good reasons. his challenger said let it take bankruptcy. these are the drastic differences these debates should debate and they better do it. i'm joined by john heilemann, former rnc chair michael steele, my kind of republican. that will kill them. and politico's j. mar, jonathan mart martin. biden, first of all for the opposition, you're on defense, michael. >> always on defense. >> what does mr. ryan have to do to fend off the older, perhaps more seasoned veterans tonight? >> i think what he has to do is not get down in the weeds of the numbers but take those numbers and translate them into real people, real stories out there, very much as you saw romney do at the beginning of the delate last time. it really set the tone for wh
mitt romney who talked about 38.5 minutes. that wasn't necessarily an advantage for the president. because romney was widely considered to have won that debate. there was less of a gaffe during the vice presidential debate four years ago. joe biden spoke just under 40 minutes. sarah palin spoke for 40 minutes and 29 seconds. biden and palin stood at podiums. tonight, biden and ryan will be sitting together at a table and that will affect the way they interact, possibly also the amount of time they talk. jessica yellin is at the media center. jim acosta is in the spin room. jessica, set the scene for us. what's going on? >> hi, wolf. i'm actually in the media filing center. this is where the press from around the nation, actually from around the world. there are some people in from koer countries, have come to watch the debate and file their stories. you can see around here, here's our sister company, mark halperin and people from press from all over the place. fili and this is the gymnasium for centre college. usually, they play basketball and sports in here. but tonight, we're wa
said they're in favor of arming the rebels in syria. had you already tried to talk to mitt romney and he wasn't listening? >> well, we've had a couple of differences and i support governor romney and think he will make a great president, but on foreign policy, i think there's too much agreement between the republicans and democrats. but i think the people are tired of war. when you talk to republicans or democrats now, i think it's almost universal. people want to come home from afghanistan. you know, there's such great sorrow when you think about our soldiers being killed by the same police and soldiers being helped. so i've seen a great movement in recent weeks towards really wanting to come home and i don't want governor romney to think it is a good thing to appear more bellicose. i think there are more republicans and independents who don't necessarily want a president who will begin a war in syria. i think it's very important that we not express that as what we're trying to do. >> had you spoken to him privately? >> i spoke with him a couple of months ago and my swren impress
other. that's what the whole 47% discussion that mitt romney was talking about. he was with obviously people he was comfortable with. he was talking the way he probably talks more in private anyway, and has written off half of the country. yet at the debate starts talking about that people are in pain and people are suffering, and there is poverty in america that he loves teachers. while having laid teachers off while he was governor in massachusetts. he and his running mate literally speak out of both sides of their mouth, have no expectation that a, they'll get called on it or b, if they get called on it they will just keep running their mouths. >> jennifer: i'm sure there are a not of republicans that love cities, but i'm wondering if it is damaging to the democracy to have only one party with a chance at urban areas. >> the vice president of the u.s. conference of mayors mayor scott smith of mesa arizona, he is a republican. mitt carmet from oklahoma city you talk about other republican mayors who are a part of our organization, to be honest with you, i don't
amount of pressure on paul ryan to do exactly that. if you talk to people in the romney camp they believe the debate win by mitt romney last week was absolutely critical. this came after a month or so of just horrible press for romney gaffes on the campaign trail, unforced errors and this debate give them a silver lining and a path to get past those things. if paul ryan majorly flubs this debate tonight, that is not going to be a good thing for them. that could affect the polls in a way that the campaign does not want. >> bill: what do you of this attempt to soften mitt romney to the kinder gentler side? he tried that on abortion and then the house from the tea partiers and conservatives were so extreme that two days later he had to come back and say no no no i am pro-life. >> the romney campaign will tell you they don't believe he changed his position. paul ryan said he isn't disappointed from what he saw from his running mate and they have a unified position on this issue. whether you are changing your position or not. that's a problem that hits at the
are talking about. >> last week mitt romney dominated in his first debate against president obama. in an interview with abc news, the president even admitted he had a bad night. >> your supporters have been saying, "this wasn't a bad night, he didn't show up.” is it possible you handed him the election that night? >> no. there's no doubt i can make a better case, which is why i am so looking for to tuesday. >> polls among likely voters showed romney did get a boost after the bait and he's taking advantage of it. >> we cannot afford another series of budget deficits of roughly $1 trillion per year. this is not just bad for the economy, it's bad for jobs. >> brandi hitt, abc news, ky. >> the vice-presidential debate tonight, log on to wjla.com/react from your compatible smartphone, browser or tablet to give us your reactions during that debate and we will share the results tonight at 11:00. >> south carolina posing new voter identification law, it cannot be implemented until next year. the law requires voters to show one of five types of photo identification to cast a ballot. it w
today talking about their candidates abortion stance after mitt romney said this yesterday to the des moines register. >> there's no legislation with regards to abortion that i'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda. >> president obama responded tonight in an interview on abc news. >> this is another example of governor romney hiding pogs he's been campaigning on for a year and a half. >> is it a lie? >> governor romney has made very clear that if a bill comes to his desk that overturns roe versus wade, that he would be fully supportive of that. he said, i will appoint justices that will overturn roe versus wade and now four weeks before an election he is trying to cloud the question when it comes to women's rights to control their own health care decisions. >> the president then said why it matters that mitt romney is now running away from the mitt romney from the republican primaries. >> the one thing that i think people -- republicans as well as democrats can say -- is that there has been consistency with me from the time that i started running for president to today.
, right field and maybe we would view a better idea who mitt romney is. he will talk how we are going do get out of the black hole, what we will do the next four years and keep paul ryan to task and not talk about the grand ideas but, actually, telling us exactly what is going on. >> we thought we would get a lot of that, we get the specifics from congressman ryan, with his budget plan laid out but it doesn't seem like the republicans want him to talk about it. why? >> what you saw in the last debate, mitt romney had a chance to speak for 90 minutes about his policies and plans. the problem with the rallies when you cover them people are looking for the 30-second sound bite, not for a long, detailed expose. >>shepard: but bill clinton gave us specifics. >> no one has been more specific on budgets and entitlement reform than paul ryan. with regard to -- look, we are not going to negotiate with ourselves. the only people with the budget are the republicans with plans to save social security and medicare. >> that doesn't get us anyone. if paul ryan knows his numbers he is thought allowed to
together. >> the man mr. romney is talking about there is glen doherty. mr. doherty is the former navy s.e.a.l., one of the four americans killed in benghazi on the u.s. consulate attack in september. mr. romney told that same story about meeting mr. doherty yesterday while campaigning in iowa. >> he skied a lot, he skied in some of the places i had. we had a lot of things in common. he told me that he keeps going back to the middle east. he cares very deeply about the people there. you can imagine how i felt when i found out that he was one of the two former navy s.e.a.l.s killed in benghazi on september 11th. and it -- it touched me, obviously, as i recognized this young man that i thought was so impressive. he -- according to the reports on cnn international that i read, he was actually in a different building, in an annex, a safe place, somewhere else across town when he and his colleagues there heard that the consulate was around attack. and they went there. they didn't hunker down where they were in safety. they rushed there to go help. this is the american way. we go where there's
's described to me by the romney campaign, that's his nickname, mini mitt. you'll see him talk about the positions, not his positions before he was picked as the nominee, but mitt's position all night. that's the focus. you're not going to see a conversation paul ryan. >> phil, david says, conditions are told, this is veep candidates talk up your running mate, zing your opponent but avoid letting your career or policy ideas barack obama become the focus on the biggest life of the political life it's not about you. that said, when ryan was picked, those who didn't agree with pick said this guy has years of a congressional record, congressional approval rating is in the basement. there's a lot for joe biden to go at paul ryan on. >> and there's a lot for paul ryan to go at joe biden on. so there's four years of failed administration policy for ryan to litigate against president obama and joe biden. so i think if the question is, is there material for examination tonight in kentucky, absolutely there is. and do those issues that you raise, are they likely to come up? absolutely. but wha
to start out by saying i think if you talk to political professionals in both parties they don't see the electoral map that auspicious for romney is that real clear politics map with the states shifted. if you look at the real clear map only with no tossup states, where they push all the states where somebody has an advantage, obama is in a much stronger position, and we saw from our polls today that milt romney is trailing by six points in the state of ohio where he must win. but the test tonight for paul ryan is to try, us a mention, to accelerate the momentum that romney gained last week and try to prevent joe biden from coming out very aggressively and saying, hey, wait a minute. president obama may not have said it, but i'm going to say it tonight. there are contradictions between the romney who was on stage in denver, the romney record. joe biden is an experienced debater. he sometimes makes mistakes verbally. we'll see how he handles that, and paul ryan is young. there's a very large age gap between these two, but he is somebody who is very fluent in policy, as you know. an in
in kentucky. brooke, i did talk to a senior romney adviser about their expectations for paul ryan later on this evening. as you will recall, mitt romney told wolf blitzer on qu"the situation room" he thought that paul ryan didn't debate before, perhaps last time was in high school. we went back and talked to the ryan folks about the that and he's debated several times during the course of his congressional career and talked to a senior romney adviser and talked about expectations and guidance, a quote here, it's a new experience for hi anghiccor much more experience in the senate in the two campaigns and then the 2008 general election campaign, the face-off with sarah palin. ryan ing to focus on s substance according to this adviser. you will recall at the last debate in denver everybody talking about zingers. where are the zing efforts? when will the zingers fly? by my count, mitt romney only fired off a couple of zingers during that presidential debate with president obama and so it's possible to see maybe the same tactic tonight for paul ryan. focusing on the substance and the issues
's in the mail. >> i get the romney argument and they're probably right for all of the reasons chuck talked about in terps of the demographic of the supporters in ohio but they have to be concerned about the numbers in the nbc poll early vote in ohio. nose numbers i thought was the most important number out of the data that came out today. >> chris cillizza, thank you so much. chuck todd, see you later, as well. >> beautiful day. you got the warm weather. four hours ago, it was chilly. >> i was watching -- >> i didn't have the nice sun. >> everything is timing. >> the glow. the glow of andrea mitchell. >> thank you, chuck todd. feeling the love. what are the expectations coming from the romney campaign for paul ryan's big night tonight? here what happens his senior adviser, dan senor told chuck todd this morning, when it was really cold. >> he has to make the case about the choice in the election, all right? things have been rough over the last four years and it's incumbent on president obama and vice president biden to explain what exactly has happened over the last four years 23 million america
asked mitt romney to stop talking about her son. >> i have met some wonderful people, one was a former navy seal. glenn doorty, and we chatted for a while... >> his mother does not want mitt romney to us his debt as a political agenda. he said he will respect the wishes of his mother. >>> and the vice-president will meet for their one and only debate. she says the steaks are high for them. >> reporter: that's right, pam, it is the face off and the outcome of the vice- presidential debate could shift the outcome and momentum. it is now focused on denville kentucky in tonight's face off. republican vice-presidential hopeful paul ryan does not deny vice-president joseph biden has considerably more experience but the sitting vp does have an achilles heel. >> i noel attack us but the problem he has is, he has to run on president barack obama's record. >> the steaks are high. >> reporter: asocialsly -- especially after the record he was widely notorious. he must avoid making one of the well documented gaps. >> unchain wall street. >> they are going to put you all back in chains. >> it is up
